A Quantum Dialogue on the Meaning and Purpose of Existence

Dialogue between a master A and his pupil B:

B The Universe, or what is referred to as ‘space’, seems to be a kind of ethereal void, populated here and there by stars, planets, occasional meteors, comets and such like.

A The Universe seems like a vast and mysterious place, but when you consider that it is contained within a dew drop or a human cell, it becomes less distant. In fact, it becomes very immediate.
I refer, of course, to the microcosmic condensation of the macrocosm.

What is ‘space’? It is not what it seems. The word does not describe the reality. It seems void because you are only using your five senses to analyse it. There is no ‘space’, the area referred to is full of energy. An energy field. But you don’t recognize that which you can’t experience with your five senses.

B What other sense do we possess, other than that which recognizes reality through touch, sight, taste, smell and sound?

A We have our perception and intuition; these are receptors that pick up vibrational messages due to the absolute interconnectivity of all matter and energy. When you connect up with the source of all that is, you find that you are part of it, not distant from it. You cannot observe or experience it dispassionately – from a distance – because you yourself are part of the composition.

B But rational observation forms the basis of all science, it enables us to understand the nature and structure of things, including the Universe. We want to understand how and what life is. (more…)

Seen the Future?

We have all come across claims, past and present, in which someone states that they have ‘seen the future’. Some of these claims make good reading/listening, even if they are predominantly apocalyptic in nature.

Nostradamus is perhaps the most famous amongst such seers, and no doubt he really did visit recent events on this planet during his lifetime in 16th century Europe. His foretelling of the destruction of the twin towers (9/11) was a particularly chilling example.

Some predictions carry with them a certain cache. Those who are being told the scenario often fall silent, lean forwards and widen their eyes. A fair number take the proclamations seriously, and then tell their own versions of stories that made an impression on them.

Thus, a wide range of projected pictures of the future – typically of the country one lives in – are on display at any one time. So one can pick and choose or simply reject them all.

But what exactly is going on here? (more…)

From Slave to Shaman

How many times have you felt like a hapless onlooker in a world seemingly gone insane?

How many times have you wondered how things ever managed to get into the unprecedented mess they are in today?

How many times have you longed to escape this crazy turmoil?

I’m confident to predict that the answer is ‘many’.

But reflect on this: there must be thousands, if not millions and quite possibly billions, who feel exactly the same way. Let us assume the possibility that the majority of those living on this planet have had such thoughts from time to time. What does this tell us?

It tells us that we see our lives and what goes on ‘out there’, as two separate realities. It suggests that we feel largely removed and alienated from the goings-on of the planet, regardless of the fact that we live off its (unequally) shared resources. (more…)

The Original Sin – A Myth Whose Time Is Up

Of all the deceptions pulled on humanity over the ages, The Original Sin is probably the most devastating. Yet hugely successful from the perspective of the perpetrators.

Almost everywhere the doctrine of Christianity forged its zealous mission to convert the masses, so the Original Sin accompanied it. Imposing the rationale of guilt on untold millions whose open minds no doubt thought they were receiving a message of emancipation and light.

Not so my friends, you were in fact receiving a message just about as dark as darkness gets!

The extraordinary power of a message, properly formed, packaged and publicized, is something we have all come to learn a lot about in recent decades. ‘The medium is the message’ declared Marshall McLuhan back in 1964. And that edict could easily pass for the moment the first biblical texts let it be known that a man called Adam and a woman called Eve got the whole human race off to a very bad start … from which it appears to have never recovered.

There’s a Seal On The Soul

. . . . . that cannot be removed

None of us who were raised in the orthodox Christian Tradition are likely to remember the moment when the priest placed his index finger on our foreheads and moved it so as to record the shape of the cross on our tiny brows.

Yet this moment becomes a symbolic and strategic ‘freeze frame’ within the wider context of our initiation into the control system called ‘society’.

Some at the receiving end of this ritual have gone on to repeat it with their own children. Holding, or passing to the priest, the little bundle of innocence so that the mark of the cross can be painted onto that beautiful expanse which links the two temples. But there’s one thing one can almost certainly count on, the fact that almost nobody truly understands what they are doing. (more…)

The Appointment With Infinity

Part 2 of ‘The Active Side of Infinity’

The writings of Carlos Castaneda: commentary by Julian Rose

“The practicalities that scientists are interested in are conducive to building more and more machines. They are not geared to reaching the vastness of the universe as a personal, experiential affair.”

“Someday I’ll tell you more about the forces that drive man to act like an ass. Some of us make sense when we talk because we are prepared to use words accurately. But most of us are not prepared to take ourselves seriously as men who are going to die.
Being immortal, we wouldn’t know how to do that. It makes no difference what complex machines scientists can build. The machines can in no way help anyone face the unavoidable appointment: the appointment with infinity.” (more…)

The Active Side of Infinity

Carlos Castaneda and Julian Rose

“Every one of us human beings has two minds. One is totally ours, it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose. The other is a foreign installation. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubts, hopelessness: it’s ourselves as the ‘me-me’ centre of the world.”

Thus spoke Carlos Castaneda in ‘The Active Side of infinity’ which is part of the ‘Teachings of Don Juan’ series. And I’m going to give you more excerpts from The Active Side of Infinity. Because I believe that these writings present Shamanic teachings to us in a direct, powerful way – and at a time when we most need them. (more…)

Spinning the Web of Life

Spiders do it. Take a look – oh what an amazing creation! Working their way out from the first circle; filling-in every loop of the circuit; spinning on the outward pull; determined, full of intention, guided by Divine. So my friends, why can’t we?

Look at that final creation on the garden gate on a misty October morning – wow – what a stunner! Stay looking and what do you see? A little universe spun into being, oh so delicate, so strong, so inspired.
So my friends, why can’t we?

Its gossamer threads trembling in anticipation, its architecture resonant with spontaneous beauty, oh so glorious – so my friends, why aren’t we? (more…)

Why Humanity Must Come Through

Need I say it, we are living in – and through – an apocalyptic time. Disintegration and destruction manifest at an accelerating pace as our World is buffeted by a jumbled combination of opposing energies: the distorted man made toxic ones as well as the universal vibratory waves that are an integral part of great cosmic changes.

Nothing we have experienced up until now quite compares with this. There is little that could prepare us for our journey through this collision of forces, aside from an emerging awareness that they are both external and internal manifestations. Manifestations of human and universal energies seeking to redefine and rebalance their shared essence. (more…)

The Anatomy of Cyborg Man

‘Overcoming the Mechanistic Mind’

In ‘The Transhumanist Singularity – The Ultimate Escapism’, I attempted to address the supposedly imminent take-over of humanity by a computer controlled technology designed by people who have usurped their free will to that of a machine.
It became evident in researching the background to the Transhumanist agenda, that not only ‘eugenics’ but also ‘reductivism’ – the reducing of all human life to a gene – is a central component of the techno anti-life blueprint.
I am thankful for William Engdahl in pointing out that after World War Two and the horrors of Auschwitz , the term ‘eugenics’ acquired a bad reputation, so the name was changed to ‘genetics’: which, as in reductivism, is about the reducing of human life to a gene. This enables genetic engineers to manipulate the expression of that gene so that it becomes dominant and takes complete control over other life forms. (more…)
